Robert F. Kennedy’s Campaign Debut
Pro-crypto Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy made a campaign debut at the Bitcoin 2023 conference in Miami. The Democrat candidate for U.S. President took to the “Nakamoto Stage” at the Bitcoin 2023 conference to make some powerful pledges involving bitcoin.
Robert F. Kennedy shared his own experiences with Bitcoin stating that he would protect the rights of Americans to hold and use the asset if he is elected president: „As president, I will make sure that your right to hold and use Bitcoin is inviolable.“ He added that bitcoin was both an exercise and a guarantee of civil liberties when used properly: „I am an ardent defender and lifelong defender of civil liberties, and Bitcoin is both an exercise and a guarantee of those freedoms.“
Freedom Through Crypto
The presidential candidate told the audience that it was Canada’s clampdown on truck drivers protesting Covid-19 restrictions that spurred his interest and understanding of Bitcoin: „When I witnessed this cataclysm, this devastating use of government repression, I realized for the first time how free money is as important to freedom as free expression,“ he said before adding: “Bitcoin is a bulwark against precisely this kind of government and corporate expansion.“
The Support Is There
Robert F Kennedys‘ speech resonated well with many people in attendance who are actively involved in cryptocurrency businesses or investments, showing there’s strong support for crypto within certain circles in America today – especially since there are still uncertainly over cryptos future legality in some countries such as China or India where they have been banned completely from trading or using them altogether .
Kennedy concluded by saying „We must all fight together so everyone has access not only to basic human rights but also digital ones“ showing his commitment towards equality worldwide when it comes down crypto usage , giving everyone equal access regardless their location or background .
